A 2D grid-shaped cyanide-bridged Co(II)-Au(I) bimetallic coordination polymer, [Co(DMF)2(Au(CN)2)2], has been prepared from the [Au(CN)2]- building block; sheets associate pair-wise by aurophilic interactions and the compound exhibits zeolite-like properties.
Two isomorphous anionic metal dicyanamide extended systems [Cu(pCTH)][M(dca)(4)] (M = Mn(II), Co(II); dca = dicyanamide; pCTH = 5,7,7,12,14,14-hexamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetrazacyclotetradecane-4,11-diene) have been prepared through [Cu(pCTH)](2+) templation and characterized by X-ray crystallography and magnetic measurements. In these complexes, the… (More)
Two polymorphic cyano-bridged Au(I)-Ni(II) bimetallic complexes of formulas [Ni(en)2Au(CN)2][Au(CN)2] (1) and [Ni(en)2[Au(CN)2]2] (2) have been prepared from the 1:2 reaction between [Au(CN)2]- and either [Ni(en)2Cl2]Cl or [Ni(en)3]Cl2.2H2O, respectively. The structure of 1 consists of polymeric cationic chains of alternating [Au(CN)2]- and [Ni(en)2]2+… (More)
A family of cyano-bridged copper(II)-copper(I) mixed-valence polymers containing diamine ligands of formula [Cu(pn)(2)][Cu(2)(CN)(4)] (1, pn = 1,2-propanediamine), [Cu(2)(CN)(3)(dmen)] (2, dmen = N,N-dimethylethylenediamine), and [Cu(3)(CN)(4)(tmen)] (3, tmen = N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine) have been prepared with the aim of analyzing how their… (More)
